Nelles Beach in Grimsby is posted as closed.
Beaches are posted unsafe/closed when water tests show unacceptable levels of E. Coli bacteria.
The beach might also be unsafe because of floating debris, oil, excessive weed growth, bad odours and general turbidity.
Swimming in these waters could cause infections of the ear, eye, nose, throat and skin as well as cause diarrhea if the water is ingested.
